Hi dear Maja fans! I am back with a romantic birthday card today. I just love the flowery papers from Maja Design and the Vintage Romance collection. And here I have used some:)

Vintage-Romance-P

I will show you the papers used at the end of this post.

The image is from Magnolia, and I have coloured her with Distress Ink, re-inkers and markers. I try to use colours that fit the papers used.

Some homemade flowers together with roses from WOC. The flowers are cut out from crepe paper with some dies.

Here comes some closeups.

I love the way all the papers in the collection fit so well together.

Hi there! I hope February has been good to you so far. When it is cold outside I dream about Summer:) And here is a card for you with the lovely Vintage Summer Basics collection.

Vintage-Summer-Basics-P

I will give you the list of the papers used at the end of this post. But first some more photos of my card. As you can see I have a round window in the front.

And I have also made a belt to keep the card together. The paper lace is made with a die from Magnolia called Swedish lace.

Out to the left I have used a punch called Word Window Punce on the Maja paper. The leaf circle is made with a Magnolia die and the pink flowers with a Small Retro Flower punch. And Tilda is coloured in colours that match the lovely Maja papers.

I have stamped the text directly on to the pattern paper. It is from Stempelglede. As you can see I have sewed the papers, and inked the edges with Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain.

IMG_6764

And here is the inside of the card. “Tommel opp” means “Thumbs up”. I have also painted with White Gesso here and there.

IMG_6769

I have used the same pattern papers inside the card as the front. And also on the sides. They are only glued on top and on the bottom, so that I can put a tag, a greeting or some money under it.

Here are the papers used:

Hello lovely Maja fans! I am back with a paperbag this time. I have decorated it with gorgeous pattern papers from the Vintage Spring Basics collection. Hope you like it.

Vintage-Spring-Basics-P

I will give you the list of papers used at the end of the post.

IMG_6471

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink reinkers, and in colours that I feel matches the papers very well. They both have the soft, romantic tones. The sentiment and surrounding stamps are from Stempelglede.

IMG_6472

The small butterflies are cut out from the Vintage Spring papers.

IMG_6450

Since the front is so heavily decorated, I have made the back simple. I just love these beautiful papers, and here you got to see more of them.

I hope you enjoyed my post. Here comes the papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting! Have a great day!

With love,

Camilla

Vintage-Spring-Basics-P

I will list you the specific papers at the end of the post.

IMG_6387

I have coloured the Magnolia image Italy Tilda from the Stamp & Cutz CM-16. She is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I have tried to use the same colours that you find in the papers. The colour of the dress is Bundled Sage.

IMG_6374

The cute little butterflies are cut out from a Vintage Spring Basic pattern paper. I have just inked them on the edges with Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain; as all the paper edges. The heart tags are made with a Doohickey from Magnolia, others are made mostly with dies from the DooHickey box vol 9, Fairytale.

IMG_6409

Some new texts on my tags this time, they are from the Norwegian magazine Ett Trykk, Norsk Stempelblad. I have been chosed to be one of their guest designers for 2017. There will be six magazine this year, and in each you will among many others find some of my cards. And ofcourse I use my Maja papers 😉

The tags are made with Bazzill Kraft and I have added some Maja papers to finish the cute look :) The shape of my card is made with a GoKreate die. The lovely laces are from the shop LLC, the same as my doilies. And as you see I have coloured with white Gesso here and there.

Here is a list of the wonderful papers used:

Hi there! How are you? I really hope you are having a lovely holiday. I know this time of year can be sad for many, often because the ones they have dear are not here anymore. I really miss my mother who passed away three years ago, especially at this time of year. She loved everything about Christmas, and mostly because she could bring the family together. I think that is an important thing I have learned from her, and that I can be better at. Just to spend time with family and loved ones. But I am not that good cook that she was :)

Home-for-the-holidays-P

Some nights ago I went to my friend Audhild, and we sat down colouring together with two other friends. It was so nice. And even if I sat there for hours, this image was the only one I had time to colour. I really love the blue and brown colours in the “Home for the holidays” collection. And felt it was perfect for little Tilda here (Tilda with sock puffs).

IMG_6141

I made some poststamps with the sheet called “Love the snow” and a die from Magnolia (Vintage Box, 3rd edition). The little snowmen are really cute.

IMG_6142

The snowflake and the stars are from a banner from Wycinanka. If you look closely on the card you can see that I have tore the paper and put a lace and some more papers inside. But as always I decorate too much, so that it is difficult to spot what I had planned to show you :)

IMG_6176

Here in the west part of Norway we haven’t had snow yet. I am longing for some snow now, not only rain. We have had the extreme weather Urd howling around our house. But luckely it was not strong enough to make any damage around here.

IMG_6164

I hope you enjoyed looking at my card today. Wish you a lovely day. And since I will be in the Maja Design Creative Team for another year (Yay, soooo proud! A big thanks to Camilla and Marie for having me!), I will be making a new post in two weeks.

But before I end, I will show you the papers I have used for my project:

Big warm Christmas hugs from,

Camilla
